Hg10 by Lebreton Pierre
One from the mailbag, our first selection is a generic XMPP client for BlackBerry 10. It allows you to connect to any server that uses the XMPP protocol, though it mainly focuses on Google Hangouts. The application offers an array of features including using the Gmail API to retrieve history, synchronizing between devices, filtering favorite contacts using the pinch gesture, offering headless support and notifications, sending voice messages, and supporting Google Drive. Please note that hub integration requires OS 10.3.1 and higher. Hg10 is a native application that is free to download in BlackBerry World.
